Mitting has dug a deep hole for himself, post “Plebgate” along with Holroyde and Rafferty, he is now linked to police corruption. In his ruling he uses arcane legal cases to exculpate bent CPS maven Stuart Simpson – and fails.
Kevin Lennon made a poor witness, this, plus much more, is now in the public domain. However some further facts need to be brought to light, such as Sid Fillery’s ex colleague Derek Haslam planting child pornography on him.
Mitting mentioned DCI (now Det Supt) Neil Hibberd’s role on Fillery’s fitting up, the same Hibberd involved in putting the wrong man on Kenya’s death row. He is consistent, at least in his bungling.
Try as he might, Mitting is unable to extract Noel Beswick from the dung heap that DCS Dave Cook built up. Bent plod are never far from bent HMRC and the role of Alison Chipperton in Operation Bedingham will come under scrutiny. How many other major miscarriages of justice are connected?
